"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." -
I'm fortunate to be about a (5) minute drive of Myakka River State Park. The river flows through 58 square miles of wetlands, prairies, hammocks and pinelands, and has a very diverse bird population, not to mention thousands of Alligators. One of the migrating birds that winters down here is the White Pelican, with a wingspan of around (9) feet it's the largest of the seasonal visitors. I took a few snaps in late spring, just before they left for the season. I'll be posting some of the other birds that make this area home in upcoming posts.
